So it has been a really long time since I have blogged and I am sorry about that. I got a little caught up in the world of Facebook. Life for us has been busy as usual...getting settled in our home, we just got back from vaca and now we are on our way to planning our two birthday parties in April. This weekend we got to spend a lot of time outside due to the nice weather. Tristan was so excited to run and be outside. Isabelle got her first taste of being on the grass. At first she wasn't for sure what to think of this weird stuff but after about 10 minutes decided that it was time to roam around on it.
I can't believe how big the little munchkins are getting. Tristan is trying really hard to learn to go on the potty. Although this weekend he didn't have much time or patience for going since he got to go outside. But we will get there soon. Isabelle is cutting her first tooth (finally) and is trying really hard to figure out how to walk!! They are both getting so big and it makes me very sad to see them grow so fast.

Another Visit from Grandma .....equals another room painted:):) Grandma, Papa and Uncle Tony came down to visit us today and to finish painting the upstairs bathroom. Grandma did such a good job on the bathroom!!! It is going to be one of my favorite rooms I think and as soon as she left Tristan wanted to take a bath in his new bathroom! Papa and Uncle Tony got to spend some quality time with the kiddies....especially Tristan. Tristan took Uncle Tony for a ride...literally!

This week I took the day off so that my mom could come down and start decorating the kids' rooms. We had a great time together and it was nice to spend the day with her. Even though she was working while she was down here. She does such a great job and I can't wait to see the finished project of all of the rooms. Here are a few pics from Isabelle's room and she got the bathroom started but not finished.

Wow Christmas sure did come and go so fast!! I hope that everyone had as good of time as we did and Santa brought you everything that you wanted. We started off our Christmas Eve with driving back up to Springfield to go to mass with my parents and my brothers. It was PACKED! We ended up having to stand in the back so needless to stay we didn't make it through the whole mass. We did our best but Tristan won the battle and we had to excuse ourselves. So off we went to our Grandma and Grandpa Ross' house. Now since we have Christmas with them before hand this is just a quick visit to say hello to all of our Aunts, Uncles and cousins. (And yes Uncle Jeff be sure you come and visit when you are down here doing your modeling LOL....we won't hold our breathe in anticipation of your arrival ) It was wonderful to see everyone and I was glad that we were able to stop in. After our visit there we then drove to my Aunt Nonny and Uncle Mark's house for the annual Moscardelli Christmas. Everyone was able to make it this year except for my cousin Cara who was at home sick! We even had a few new additions this year which is always lovely....Isabelle, Calynn and Andrea (my cousin Ryan's fiance...yeah yeah I know she was there last year but she wasn't his fiance then). We had a blast there and got to eat my favorite Saputo's Lasagne for dinner!!! After opening of gifts, watching Dom's winning video from the weekend before and lots of laughter it was time for us to head home. We drove back down to our home so that we could all be in bed for when Santa came.
The next morning Tristan and Isabelle got up and much to Tristan's amazement Santa brought him is chocolate donuts! (that is all that he asked Santa for this year) He was so very excited about it. He also got a Lightning McQueen power wheels which I think he would sleep in if we let him. Isabelle had a lot of fun playing in the wrapping paper. (Next year she will care about what is in the paper) After we got everything cleaned up Mom, Dad and the boys made their way down here for a late lunch and some tournament time on the Wii that Santa brought Sean and Tristan. All and all it was a great Christmas filled with lots of family time and fun!! I hope that everyone's Christmas was as wonderful as ours!
